Singer Sam Smith has fuelled rumours he has recorded the theme tune for the new James Bond movie by posting a picture of a ring emblazoned with the film’s logo on a social media site.

The Stay with Me hitmaker has been linked to the coveted job for months, but in July he denied being involved with the film, stating, “It’s definitely not me!”

Smith added, “People seem to think I’m doing it but I have no idea what’s going on. I’m being deadly serious. I think I would know by now. I heard Ellie Goulding was going to do it.”
